The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society is welcoming in the spring session.

The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society is welcoming in the spring session.

This started April 8 and runs for nine weeks. Volunteers are needed. Join this vibrant, innovative group and you will not be disappointed.

The trails will have beautiful wildflowers and riders will be excited to start up again.

This society has been operating for 27 years. It is always evolving and changing, to keep up with the latest trends in mental, physical and emotional therapy.

The horse is a powerful influence on everyone involved. The trust, patience, acceptance and ongoing teaching that the horse does for us is quite astonishing.

The first training workshop is May 1 from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Call 250-338-1968 or 250-338-1987 for more information or e-mail cvtrs@telus.net or cvtrsthestableprogram@gmail.com for all the information you may need.

There are 150 riders signed up, and 16 horses ready to go to work.
